    The median would b e a better statistic than the average. the average is way too susceptible to outliers It could be that all men under 25 pay rediculously high premiums so that drive the average up. additionall it also depends where in the state you are. If you live in NYC your rates will be way higher than if you register your car in New Jersey, but NY has a lower average

    In Nebraska, my liability insurance was $140.00 annually. I pay attention to my driving, I took defensive driving, and I've never had an "accident."

    In Texas, my liability insurance is $63.00 monthly. Folks in The South aren't just ignorant, and self-centered, but, they're also horrible drivers. Coming the 3 miles from Albertson's the other afternoon, Logan and I saw 8 folks run the red signal (not coast, but, blatantly ignore). Drivers here are TERRIBLE. Like so many things in this part of the world, folks were never raised properly, and behave so very poorly, and are just plain arrogantly ignorant.

    While we were waiting to get turned around to head north on I35EW, some folks just were throwing beer cans out the windows. Texans are the filthiest folks I've ever seen, and I've been all over the country. We have grass fires along the freeway because folks throw lit cigarettes out. Their ignorance goes well beyond baffling.

    You know, I was shocked at first to see that Oklahoma was so high, but I'm willing to wager that the weather is the big factor for Oklahoma... regular tornadoes, ice storms, even dust devils. You've got a car out there? Count on some damage eventually.
